When the driver was asked to come out for interrogation, he reportedly got into a fight with the traffic cops and misbehaved with them when they told him that buses could not enter the city before 10:30 pm.
However, after he refused to listen to them, the constables had to call up the traffic inspector who arrived at the location and slapped the driver for creating a scene.
Police further charged the driver and registered a case for wrong time entry and defying orders issued by authorities.
